I have been teaching finance at Trine since August 2009. Previously I taught economics in Michigan at Delta College in Saginaw, Northwood University in Midland and Michigan State University in East Lansing.
I am awaiting publication of one of my 2008 doctoral thesis chapters in the Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions, and Money. Through doctoral research, I have gained expertise in finance, economics and business, and am eager to pass this expertise on to the students at Trine.
I was born in Czechoslovakia, and lived there under communism for 14 years. That experience has made me a passionate defender of freedom. I was recently inducted into the Northwood University Athletic Hall of Fame as a tennis player. I am a big fan of soccer and hockey. My wife Erin and I have a newborn daughter, Mikaela, and a seven–year–old black lab named Lucky. After living over 10 years in Michigan, we are excited to be a part of the Angola community.
